Plasmalifting gel therapy
Contour plastic is a unique non-surgical technique that allows to correct wrinkles, folds and restore the structure of the skin by introducing special filler gels, which are used mainly to fill wrinkles, nasolabial and nasolacrimal folds. To date, this method of combating age-related changes has gained a well-deserved popularity due to high effectiveness.
Special attention was paid to the quality of the injected product by specialists and patients. In order to achieve the desired result and reduce the risk of allergic reactions and rejection, the product must be natural, biocompatible, but at the same time it is good to fill volumes and ensure the long-term effect. All these requirements are met by the latest development of cosmetologists - bio-gels based on blood plasma, which are called plasmafiiler (PRF)/PRF is a unique bio-gel that is created from the patient's own blood, which makes it absolutely safe, does not cause allergies or rejection, and can be administered in almost unlimited amounts.
Unique properties of blood plasma have long been successfully used in medicine and cosmetology to solve a variety of problems. Now, my patients have the opportunity to see the efficacy of PRF - the new development of scientists for contour plastics and face modeling.
The procedure of PRF begins with a painless blood sampling and transformation of the plasma into a bio-gel. Modern equipment is able in minutes to turn liquid plasma into a transparent, sufficiently thick and sterile gel, while retaining its basic properties.
Using insulin syringe and dermaroller, platelet rich plasma is injected into the dermis of skin which starts a natural healing process by stimulating new collagen formation, revascularization and repair. That’s how PRP therapy gradually improves the skin texture and vitality by reducing the wrinkles and fine lines from the face and neck.
You can expect more youthful look in terms of skin tightening effect and glow on your skin while wrinkles and under eye circles will be taken care of to a great extent.
The pain is subjective and patient specific. PRP is injected using insulin syringe which is generally well tolerated. For sensitive individuals, we suggest numbing gel or topical anesthesia one hour prior to procedure which reduces the pain sensation considerably. Alternately, nerve blocks can be given for better pain control.
PRP therapy is safe and natural because the procedure concentrates the cells from your own blood directly back into the area where it is needed. Hence is not rejected by your immune system and there are absolutely no chance of getting any infection, allergy or hypersensitivity. However, one can get mild redness, bruising or headache which is usually self-limiting and responds very well to routine analgesics.
PRP therapy is a lunch-time procedure and it takes around half an hour for the procedure and you can go back to your work place immediately after it.
PRP therapy can be repeated every 1-2 months and usually 3 sittings are sufficient, though some patients may require maintenance therapy once a year or more frequently depending upon the care and condition of their skin. After approximately 3 weeks, you will start noticing the improvement in texture and complexion of your skin; wrinkles start disappearing, scars and pores are tightened and dark under eye circles are brightened.
